The Chicago Educational Facilities Task Force recently released a set of recommendations that includes procedures for closing schools. Task force co-chair and State Representative Cynthia Soto talks about those findings and new school closures. Then WBEZ’s Robert Wildeboer and Samuel Vega join host Alison Cuddy to discuss the implications of a video obtained by WBEZ that appears to show Chicago police officers allowing a group of people to taunt an individual sitting inside a police car. Labor and employment law expert Zev Eigen discusses details around the discrimination case against Walmart.
